Warthur
Megadeth got some decent production in on this one, and it really does show, with the intricacies of the band's songwriting much more readily apparent than on the muzzy Killing Is My Business. Dave Mustaine's lyrics start getting a political edge to them but discusses the issues in question in vague enough terms that this isn't likely to irritate too many people - they certainly don't bug me, even though I think Dave's political views when you get down to specifics are pretty laughable - but let's not lose sight of the main reason this album kicks ass: it's a fast, angry thrash metal tour de force which proved that Megadeth possessed the musicianship to equal any of the other Big Four.
